Almost everyone knows prunes are great for aiding in digestion and easing constipation. That is because they are high in fiber, sorbitol, and potassium. Potassium is also good for your heart and blood pressure. But did you also know dried prunes have an impressive amount of nutrients, vitamins, and minerals including a high percentage of vitamin K. They also contain vitamins A, C, B-2, B-3, and B-6, niacin, riboflavin, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, and copper.

All these vitamins and minerals help keep bones strong, build muscle, reduce cholesterol, lower blood pressure and blood sugar. Some studies even suggest eating prunes or drinking prune juice helps prevent lung diseases and colon cancer.
